A New Hybrid Tea So Beautiful, So Colorful That It Has Been Selected As The 

ROSE OF THE YEAR! 

Selected as the outstanding new Rose of 1959 by a nationwide test panel of 5000 home gardeners 
after a year of careful observation and testing in their own gardens under all growing conditions. 



The Most Beautiful Rose Ever Created! 



RED! 




CLefO Wilhelm Kordes~the man who created CRIMSON GLORY, the 
most fragrant of all Roses . . . PINOCCHIO, the first salmon-colored 
Floribunda . . . ZULU QUEEN, the darkest and one of the "blackest" 
of all red Roses . . . and many others — now has created the most beautiful 
and unusual exhibition Rose in years! 

Isn't this the most intriguing color combination youVe ever seen? It*s 
white . . . it's red . . .it's yellow! In fact, Kor^^j ?^r/^c/^ is completely 
different from any other Rose in existence. Basically cream-white, this 
magnificent new Hybrid Tea is lined with pink as if the edges of its petals 
were dipped in carmine. This deep, rich red color spreads throughout 
the flower as the buds open, revealing a suffusion of yellow. All season 
long, this vigorous 3-ft . plant produces an unusually large number of superb, 
long-lasting exhibition Roses — a full 5 in. across! Exquisite, isn't it? 

Can't you just picture Kordes Perfecta living and thriving in your garden- - 

blooming sometimes as individual Roses, sometimes as a breathtaking 

candelabra of enough flowers to make a whole bouquet? You'll find 

Kordes Perfecta a thrilling and eye-catchine 

addition to your garden. (PL Pat. #1604 .j

Old-Rose fragrance. The 3 to 3M-in, flowers 
often have 30 to 35 petals. The foliage is 
dense, dark, glossy green, and the plant

CLefi) The Floribunda with the new lookl An 
ivory-colored Rose with charm and grace equal 
to that of its parent, Fashion. Long slender buds 
of high-centered form open gradually to striking, 
slightly cupped, fully open, fragrant flowers. 

The richly decorative, long, graceful golden 
stamens give an air of charm to the whole en- 
semble. Firm, heavy-textured petals retain their 
ivory color to the very end. Fully open, the 4-in. 
flower keeps its fresh appearance until the last 
petal falls. Stout stems usually carry 5 to 10 buds. 
There is always color on the 24 to 30-in. plants, 
and the rich dark foliage is clean and disease 
resistant. From New Hampshire to Florida the 
testers were unanimous in their applause. Plant 
Ivory Fashion now and enjoy it in your garden 
for years to come. (PI. Pat. #1688.)

fect form and stability . . . 
Roses of magnificent colors 
never before dreamed of. 

In this new Spring 1959 
Catalog are the prime ex- 
amples of 87 years of re- 
search ... 87 years of 
success. On these and suc- 
ceeding pages are the fruits 
of a labor of love. Roses, 
the major contribution of 
Floriculture, are shown here 
in all their resplendent 
glory. 

Order now, and have the

A ,^ CLefO Named for the heroine of Verdi's most famous opera, this new 

A\ JlJ^^A Rose displays the same majestic grandeur and dark beauty as its name- 
sake. Like the Ethiopian Princess herself, this royal member of rosedom 
will capture your enthusiasm and admiration for many years to come. 
Rich spectrum-red blooms are deeper and more lustrous in color in the slow-opening buds. 
Finishing a clear, clean rose-red, the 5-in., semi-cupped flowers are lovely in all their 
stages. The velvety, heavy-textured petals are not affected by hot or wet weather. These 
gracefully cupped blooms are composed of about 25 petals, curling back as the flower opens. 
They are richly fragrant from the bud stage until the final petals drop. Excellent for cutting. 
The symmetrical plant will reach 3 ft. (PL Pat. #1639.)

A Glamorous Blend of Pastel-Pink 

and AnrlcGfl C^^&^O A large, glamorous 

combination of pastel pink and apricot tints. 

The high-centered bud, soft yellow outside and 

lovely glowing apricot on the inside, opens 

gradually to an immense flower of warm pink. The 

5/^ to 6-in. flower is entirely different from any 

other Rose now in use . . . the snap and warmth 

of the color combinations exudes an over-all feeling 

of friendliness and style. The tall plants are covered with luxuriant, 

dark shiny foliage that is unusually healthy and handsome. One of 

the best Hybrid Tea Roses to come out of Germany, it was named for the 

founder of the 100-year-old milk company. A marvelous Rose to give 

a new look to gardens, it is fast becoming a great favorite of American garden 

ers. Advanced tests throughout the country indicated that Gail Borden would 

do well wherever it was planted. A beautiful, full Rose with as many as 70 

petals. (PI. Pat. #1618.)

"My favorite color . . . my favorite fragrance . . . my fa- 
vorite Rose! It makes such a gloriously sunny picture fram- 
ing my home." — Arlene Francis. 

(Right') A golden yellow Hybrid Tea with an unforgettable fra- 
grance has been chosen to bear the name of the equally unforget- 
table stage and television star, Arlene Francis. This new Hybrid 
Tea epitomizes all the qualities that Arlene Francis expects in her 
perfect Rose. This new Rose is vigorous and prolific. It produces 
masses of flowers, and wherever the plant is cut, it repeats with 
brand-new shoots. Golden yellow buds develop into flowers 
which average from 20 to 25 petals, each opening to approximately 
5 in. across. Medium tall; very hardy. Glossy dark foliage.

2-in. buds. Throughout the entire season they 
unfold slov^^ly, giving v^^ay to majestic, high- 
centered flowers of rich golden yellow, carried

reach 6J^ to 7j^ in. across, with a full but open 
center. Even before these magnificent flowers 
appear, the bush adorns itself with nearly 
perfect, glossy green foliage. Its extremely

ENCHANTMENT 



(Belotv) 



A delightful, everblooming Hybrid Tea that will 
be a high spot in your garden all season. Early 
in the season, it develops a great display of large, 
stately buds, apricot-tinged outside, deepening 
to clear yellow at the base. These open gracefully 
with high-centered form, producing huge, long- 
lasting blooms of entrancing peach-pink color. 
They attain 6 in. across at maturity, with as many 
as 35 glorious petals per flower. Plants are vigor- 
ous and upright, growing from 2 to 3 ft. high, with 
a wealth of dark green, disease-resistant foliage. 
It required years of careful breeding by experts to 
create this truly distinguished Rose ... so be 
among the first in your neighborhood to display 
this enchanting beauty. The bush is never without 
flowers from June to late fall. (PL Pat. #737.)

New Yorker is an enormous Red, Red Rose that stays 
Red until the last petals wither and fall. The dark 
color is clear and sparkling, and the flowers are 
tremendous . . . often measuring 6j^ in. across. The 
brilliant, unfading color is scarlet with rose-red 
undertones. The rich, velvety sheen of every perfect 
petal reflects a brilliant highlight and gives the 
blooms an exceptionally lovely texture. Few Roses 
do so much to make your garden a showplace. As 
befits a Rose of such absolute perfection, the buds of 
New Yorker are beautifully formed and darker in color 
than the open bloom. The strong, sturdy stems hold 
each flower proudly erect from the time the bud 
first appears until at long last the bloom has de- 
veloped and finally shatters. Every hour, every 
minute that you see these lovely blooms in 
your garden you'll be completely amazed at 
the clear, sparkling, rich color and the tre- 
mendous, beautifully formed blooms. The 
sturdy, disease-resistant, 3-ft. plants are ex- 
ceptionally vigorous. The magnificently 
formed blooms of enormous size continue 
without interruption all season 
from June until cold weather. 
The young shoots and new 
growth are bright red, adding to 
the beauty and interest of New 
Yorker in your garden. (PL

White Swan 



WniHI&fM *DuMU>*u/ ^tJii^ 



(Leji) One of the most beautiful sights in 
any garden is a dark green bush full of 
glorious pure white Roses! And when 
these Roses are as perfectly formed, de- 
lightfully fragrant, extremely hardy as 
White Swan, you have a truly rare prize. 
Yes, here is a white Rose that the gardening 
world adores ... as upright in growth, 
as vigorous and as free blooming as Roses 
of other colors. The long graceful buds 
slowly open into 3 to 4-in., high-centered, 
pCire white blooms — and because they grow 
on 24-in. stems, they are perfect for cutting. 
Vigorous, 3 to 4-ft. plants are sturdy and 
upright. The fragrance, although not 
dominant, is very effective. The ample 
foliage is disease resistant as well as eye- 
catching. White Swan has unusually fine 
exhibition qualities. Good white Roses are 
rare; don't overlook this one. It's a real 
prize. White Swan will provide fun for the 
family as well as beautify your home and 
garden. Plant it this spring and enjoy its 
beauty for years to come. (PL Pat. #1115.) 

$2.50 each; 3 for $6.60; 12 for $26.40 



(Beloiv) The loveliness and perfection of this handsome 
Rose will amaze you when its enormous flowers appear in 
your garden. You'll agree with the experts who voted this 
top honors in the 1948 All- America Trials. The blooms, of 
unsurpassing loveliness on a plant which is attractive in 
itself, give you undeniable proof that the Rose is indeed 
the "Queen of Flowers." The color is warm glowing buff- 
orange, deeper in cooler weather, with a radiant sparkle 
from a touch of orange-yellow at the base of each petal. 
Often 5 to 6 in. across, the many stately flowers on every 
plant are fully double and high-centered. The many heavy- 
textured petals do not fade or burn even in warm weather, 
but rather intensify in color as the flower opens. You will 
enjoy a rich soft old Rose fragrance. Diamond Jubilee 
lasts exceptionally well either on the bush or as a cut 
flower. Warmth of color, perfection of form and rugged 
vigor are yours in great measure from Diamond Jubilee. 
The plant is sturdy and full, well clothed with rich dark 
green foliage, and the constant succession of 
flowers are held erect on long stems. (PI.

All-America Winnerl {Left) Here is the first white Rose 
ever to win the All-America Award. Its magnificent, pure satiny white 
flowers do not discolor. Each stem generally carries only one bloom — 
an outstanding beauty which lasts long either on the bush or in a vase. 

Unlike other white Roses, it does 
not "ball", but presents each 
splendid blossom in gracefully out- 
curling loveliness . . . perfection 
in pure white. The plant is free 
blooming and very vigorous, grow- 
ing upright in excellent symmetry 
to a height of 3 ft. or more. Strong 
canes, good foliage. (PL Pat. 
#1359.)

New Unusual Colorl 
Lavender-Lilacl 

(L^/0 A lovely past el tint of lavender- 
lilac with a light silvery reverse. The bud is pointed, 
and the flower opens gradually to a high-centered bloom 
of average size, with moderate fragrance. The pastel 
tints of the two tones make this a perfect specimen for 
formal and informal arrangements. The flowers are 
usually borne singly, on 12 to 15-in. stems. The plant 
grows 20 to 24 in. high and has excellent foliage of deep, 
dull green, very neat and decorative. This variety seems 
to show its best color under normal rather than 
extreme conditions. (PI. Pat. #1434.)

(Leff) The beautiful display starts early on this hardy Flori-

appear. Slowly they open to high-centered, Hybrid-Tea- 
shaped blooms with 35 to 40 petals ... of sparkling warm 
ORANGE-RED, softening to reddish coral . . . with a sweet, 
old Rose fragrance. The vigorous plant blooms constantly 
from early spring to severe frost . . . sometimes in clusters

Spartan is destined to become one of the most popular Flori- 
bundas of all time. Long stems make it perfect 
for cutting, and there is no end to the flowers avail- 
able for house use. Never before a Rose like this!

Even in extreme heat, these lovely red beauties 
keep their form and color, setting your garden 
ablaze all season and providing scores of cut

blooms are borne in abundance. Buds 
are dark oxblood-red, and the tumbled 
pattern of inner petals shows a 
brighter color in contrast to the dark 
buds. Vigorous and hardy, the plant 
will reach 2 ft. tall. The blooms 
appear both in clusters and in-

The word "everblooming" seems inadequate ... as the

on other shoots. This persistent bloom continues all 
summer long. The artistic sprays of buds and blooms last 
unusually well and are incomparable for mass or minia- 
ture flower arrangements. The 20 to 24-in. plant is 
extremely hardy. Ample, rich dark foliage is very- 
disease resistant. Pinocchio has an exotic, 
fruity fragrance. The cool pink masses of 
bloom are refreshing. The charm of this 
Rose, which was evident when it was first 
introduced, seems never to fade. Everyone 
loves it and its popularity grows steadily 
with every season. Plant it this

mass plantings. Ovoid buds are tinted deep 
reddish pink and unfold demurely into flowers 
with bufF-salmon-pink hearts, flushing into a 
deeper pink at the outer petals. The nutty 
fragrance adds to its charm when used in flower 
arrangements or nosegays. Its season- 
long bloom, delightful color and fra- 
grance make it unusual and effective 
in any location you may choose. 
With all its pure delicacy of form and 
color, Pink Bountiful is hardy and 
easy to grow. Height 2 ft. (PL

(Right) Truly unique and different, 
each cluster of 10 to 25 buds shows 
blooms of yellow, red, pink, 
lemon and sometimes orange. All 
these colors appear at once in a 
magnetic combination. Each bud 
is golden yellow, with tiny ver- 
milion marks. The center bud in 
each cluster opens first, becoming 
rose-pink as the petals unfold. 
Gradually the rose-pink deepens 
until it is a deep red. While the 
first bud in any cluster is going 
through these stages, other buds 
are gradually developing, each 
one passing through the same 
lovely color sequence. Bushy and 
free blooming. A bed ofit is a dream

Gladiator 



(Belotv) Here's- the champion of 
everblooming Climbers. Like 
the gladiators of old, it has 
incredible endurance . . . 
blooms and reblooms all season. You'd expect to find such huge blooms 
only on the finest Hybrid Tea; yet Gladiator is noted for its immense, 
5-in., high-centered flowers . . . unusually large for a Climber. But the 
huge size is only part of the story! When you see the brilliant rose-red 
color — a subtle blend of the brightest scarlet and the softest red— you'll 
know why this gorgeous Climber is in a class all by itself. You'll be 
absolutely thrilled when scores and scores of exquisite flowers burst 
into bloom on the 8 to 10-ft. plants, making an irresistibly beautiful 
picture in your garden, on your fence, around your house! And Gladia- 
tor imparts a delicate, pleasant fragrance that is really delightful. The 
large, disease-resistant foliage is an impressive dark emerald-green in 
color and creates a decorative effect by itself. Yet so hardy is this 
Climber that it withstands the battles of zero winter climate. In every 
sense of the word, this Climber is a real champion; all lovers of beauty 
are sure to feci its impact. This superb Climber pays for itself many 

times over, even in one season. (PI. 
Pat. #1524.) 



MORNING DAWN 



QBelotv) A refreshing 
color in Climbers. The 
large, 5-in. flowers arc a 
dewy, silvery rose flushed with salmon, so it is a warm soft pink in all 
stages. A sufl^usion of yellow at the base of the petals only serves to 
enhance this Rose. One of the most fascinating things about this 
Climber is its unusually large buds, which are about 3 in. across and of 
the same color and fine texture as the full blooms. Magnificent, fully 
double blooms appear singly and on very long stems. Attractive shiny, 
dark holly-like foliage decorates this 6 to 8-ft. pillar. It will fill your 
garden with its sweet, spicy old Rose fragrance. You will be delighted 
with its performance and marvel at its large blooms and enchanting 
color. Plant it this spring and enjoy its beauty and fragrance in your 
garden for years to come. (PI. Pat. #1447.)

ROYAL GOLD 



(^Above) This vigorous, easily 
managed Climber that 
blooms the first year it is 
planted is the yellow Climb- 
er you have been looking for! Ovoid buds open to gorgeous, golden 
yellow blooms with up to 45 shiny petals. These richly colored, enduring 
flowers reach up to 4 in. across. With the blooming habit of a Floribunda, 
the flowers are carried in clusters of three to seven and also singly on 
stems adequate for cutting. The abundant foliage is of moderate size, 
borne on the 4 to 5-ft. canes that will develop the first year. Three to 
four canes will be produced each following year until the plant reaches 
its full, majestic height of 5 to 7 ft. A moderate fruity fragrance sur- 
rounds this well-balanced Climber. Characterized by dependable re- 
currence of bloom and strong growth, this Pillar 
Rose never tends to get out of bounds. This brilliant 
plant is very adaptable and extremely hardy. We 
are proud to present it to Rose growers who have 
hopefully looked for this type and color. (Prop.

(^Ahove) True to the traditional hero 
of Tirso de Molina's drama, Mozart's 
most perfect opera, and Lord Byron's epic poem, this new Climber con- 
stantly surrounds itself with beauty. In its quest for beauty, this new 
Pillar Rose dresses itself with an unusual number of velvety red flowers 
throughout the entire summer. In spring there is a burst of deep velvety 
red, 5-in. flowers, both in clusters and singly, with a delightful fragrance. 
The pointed bud is a rich deeper red and excellent for cutting. The flower 
retains its clean color until the petals drop to the ground. All through 
the summer there is a constant display of the fragrant, rich red flowers, 
not only on the old wood but on new tall-growing bottom breaks. The 
8 to 10-ft. plant is well filled with dark green, lustrous foliage. Highly 
resistant to disease and mildew, this new Climber promises to gain great 
popularity, as its excellent quality of bloom, its color and its fragrance 
become known. (Prop. Rights Reserved.)

now. The coral tone does not fade at any stage . . . from 
the dainty pointed buds to the slow-opening, graceful, long-

decorate the plant all summer long, in clusters of from 3 to

reached the Climbers, where it is particularly eff'ec-

Climber leaves a lasting impression when it is seen 
on a full blooming plant. Although the spring 
blooms alone are ample recompense for the proud 
owner, there is always a strong, rich fall bloom as a 
wonderful bonus. The 6 to 7-ft. canes which con- 
tinue to greater heights the next year are indicative 
of the hardiness and vitality of this promising 
Climber. Enchanting orange-red to spectrum-red 
clusters last long . . . and each one of the 4-in. 
blooms is infused with vigor and freshness. Its al- 
luring color does not fade. (PL Pat. #1416.)

Most Stately, Most Dramatic of All FloweringTrees 

MagnoHa Soulangeana, You need no longer admire 
the gorgeous spring blooms of the widely loved Saucer 
Magnolia in someone else's garden! Many of our plants are 
already budded; all are sturdy and will give you many years 
of enjoyment once they have become established in your 
;arden. This magnificent variety, commonly called the 
•aucer Magnolia, bursts into glory early in ttie spring with a 
stunning display of 6-in. flowers that have generous, heavy- 
textured petals of glistening white with purplish or rose 
tones on the reverse side. One of the first trees to bloom in 
the spring, Magnolias are literally 
covered with flowers even before 
the leaves appear. Later the foliage 
is broadly oval and a rich leathery 
green. It makes a very handsome 
ornamental tree, which under ideal 
conditions grows as high as 30 ft. 
A splendid tree for growing in 
smoky city areas. Good drainage 
rather than a rich soil is the prime 
essential for Magnolias. For best 
results apply fertilizer every two 
years. They are hardy in practically 
all sections of the country. If peach 
trees will live in your locality. 
Magnolias will do well there, too.

fives or dozens for dramatic color effects.

DELIGHTFUL QAbove^ 

Deep blue. The rare, real 
all-blue, in the darker 
shades so hard to get. 
Particularly effective be- 
cause it is so good with 
other colors. It furnishes 
a glorious background for 
lower-growdng flowers. 5 
ft. tall. This is what you 
have in mind when you 
speak of dark, rich "Del- 
phinium-blue." It is a 
glorious color badly needed 
in most perennial plant- 
ings. Be sure to cut back 
the plant after its first 
blooming period so that 
it will repeat later.

LOVELINESS (K/^^0

ets 33^ to 4 in. across. Each

lavender color with a white 
center and accentuated on 
thefar edges with tiny points 
of sea-blue. The full flower 
spikes furnish a dramatic 
accent in any group plant- 
ing. Height 4 to AH ft. 
It will repeat rapidly in the 
summer months and will 
be lovely again in the fall. 
Superb for a border where 
its full beauty may be en- 
joyed. We recommend it 
highly.
